What is a Museum-Quality Framing?

Like conservation or preservation framing, museum quality framing is a term used to indicate a method of matting and mounting artwork as well as display items. This method requires using only those materials and techniques that preserve the items for for longevity without the damage and deterioration found in regular framing. The most important thing to remember is that any item being framed must be framed using REVERSIBLE techniques. This means that the item can be removed without harm. No household tapes (i.e.-masking, etc.) or glues are used in preparation. On very important documents and other light sensitive items, only glazing (glass or acrylic) with ultraviolet filtering characteristics should be used. This would reduce or eliminate any serious fading.
